Louis Hess organized a Retreat Day, which was a day to worship and have fun doing so, hosted at the Parish Hall. I went and met the American confirmation candidates, we spent the day doing religious activities, read letter, wrote a letter to Bishop Anthony Taylor, and attended a mass directed towards us teenagers. At Retreat Day Mrs. Louise reminded us to find a sponsor to accompany us on Confirmation Day, but to remember it had to be an adult who would always help us and not let us forget our Catholic ways; however, by this time I had already been asked by Francisca, a close family friend, to be her goddaughter, so I was set. To wrap our day up, Sister Josephina surprised us with a large envelope, for each of us, with letters from our loved ones, which we were not expecting. We spread out around the Parish Hall, it was nice outside so I sat at a nearby picnic table.
I was in charge of choosing whether or not I wanted to continue my faith – not my parents, not my friends, but my decision. The Roman Catholic Church has a traditional way of living. People of other religions tend to say the Catholic Church is strict due to the intensity of our beliefs. For example, the Church does not believe in divorce; therefore, when one
Since, I had religion classes through out my school years I have been taught to accept other people's religious beliefs. Even my parents have taught me to look at a person's culture and beliefs to gain a better understanding of their point of view. With the understanding of others religious beliefs and cultures it has allowed me to deal with others in a fair and equal manner. Even though I have had some difficult time with others I remember how I was raised and it has helped me through those difficult times. There are benefits and disadvantages of believing in the Catholic faith.
Why or why not? This humanities class has had a great impact on my religious outlook. I have been a Catholic my entire life, because it is the faith of my family. As I’ve gotten older, I have chosen the Catholic faith and beliefs as the basis for my life, becaus... ... middle of paper ... ...ted listening to Christian music outside of church. I love the message of Christian music and I enjoy the reminder of God’s love and presence it provides.
God answered me one, “Tell your church what generosity in Christ way you received from them recently, and it’s the evidence that I am always leading your church.” I went to church where people come from the same home country and have the similar cultural background. It’s easy to build up a comfortable zone since we have the same mother tongue until the day God asked me to come to Anthem. I so struggled because it 's really a challenge to jump into a group in which people have a deep spiritual connection and I have never been involved in before. God shows me his mercy by giving me several generous people here, they: They welcomed me and invited me to their groups; They heard my stories patiently and tried their best to remember my name which is totally another unusual language to them. They shared grace they received and the experience they had to me to encourage my decision in following God’s
Without them we couldn't receive God’s grace and we would more distant from God. Baptism is an important part of my life as a Catholic. It is frees me of original sin and it is part of the initiation in the Catholic Church. Baptism is important because it allows us to go to enter the kingdom of God. Even though I can’t remember my baptism, I learn more about it in my religion class at school.
Because of this rally and the message it sent, I realized and wanted to give my life to Jesus through baptism. It was awesome, I got home as a young teenager and actually talked to my mom about what it really means to be a Christian and to pick up your cross and follow him. So that very next weekend, my dad baptized me in front of the whole church on Sunday morning. It was an awesome feeling knowing that because of Jesus’ grace and mercy, I will be with him one day and spend eternity with him. Although I was on top of the world at this point, I still didn’t know fully what I had gotten into.
What shows people watch or don 't watch, how people treat each other, and what people are interested in. However, Dennette says that students should be required to learn about all religions just like they are required to learn about other subjects, students should have the ability to pick their own religion. Instead of focusing on having every school teach about each religion, we should be focused on disciplining to those who are struggling to believe that the Bible is true. The world would have less crime, be more unified, and have a better purpose if everyone was learning about, and believed in Christ as their Savior. Finally, I do not think that cows and religion are similar.
My grandparents also helped further my Christian education. My Grandmother Hall made an impact on my understanding of church because she was very opinionated about what her preacher should and should not be preaching about from the pulpit. Her opinions caused me to think about what I believed in and why I believed that way. My family was very important to my upbringing in the church. As a Christian, I feel there are several places where I can feel close to God.
I always knew the answers to the Sunday school questions, but I wanted to know more. I wanted to know Jesus in a real way. I would pray asking God to “give me more understanding about all that He was.” In the eleventh grade, I began to have intense dreams about preaching and teaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
